Musahar Development Initiatives

The excluded groups of the society need special attention for an integration in the mainstream of the society. Their vulnerability in terms of lack of access to facilities like education, sustainable income and health push them behind in the development race. To add to their plight are the factors like absence of participation in decision-making, absence of a voice and absence of identity as an excluded community.

Musahar have been victims of social and economic exploitation by centuries, with the problems having worsened in recent decades. The poverty faced by them is an extremely complex phenomenon, which manifests itself in economic, political and social deprivation. In addition to this, the governments' benefits / services, schemes and entitlements hardly reach them. These included no assets, low-income levels, hunger, dismal health, poor education, insecurity, physical and psychological hardship, social exclusion and discrimination. The organisation has been supporting the community in 07 villages falling under Khorabar, Brahmpur and Pipraich block of Gorakhpur district.
